C: Crown of Midnight Review by @SarahJMaas #AtoZChallenge

CC stands for Crown of Midnight, the second book in NYT’s bestselling Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. Be sure to check out the new collection of novellas, The Assassin’s Blade.

Crown_of_MidnightFrom the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie…and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

The Fault in Our Stars Movie Trailer and Mini Review

So John Green’s NYT Bestselling The Fault in Our Stars movie comes out June 6th! And if you think recognize the main actress, Shailene Woodley, it’s because you’ve seen her face plastered on almost every Divergent merchandise for the past year.

What did I think of the book?

the_fault_in_our_starsIt reminded me a lot of C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces. Meaning, brilliance dripped off its pages, but (let’s be real) I only understood about 1/3rd of it.

Which is why this is a (very) mini review.

Review: Champion by @Marie_Lu

Champion is the last in the NYT bestselling YA trilogy. Read my review of the first, Legend, and the second, Prodigy.
championJune and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps-Elect, while Day has been assigned a high-level military position.

But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.

Finally finally finally I get my grubby fingers on this book!!

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
